Default Did you ever snoop?

Did you ever snoop for holiday or birthday presents? Did you get caught? Were you glad you snooped or were you sorry?

My older brother snooped and then brought me to the attic and then showed me my Tiny Tears doll.

I finally did when I was 14 or 15. In my mother's closet I found a box filled with makeup, powder, lip glass, etc. I was so excited about it but come the big day, I didn't get it! I asked my mom about it and she didn't know I had snooped. She made some excuse. I think my father made her take it back. Lol

What about you?

I snooped when I was about 12 or 13 and found everything that I got for Christmas that year. I didn't get caught, but there was no surprise and I didn't like it. Never did it again.

My sister tells everyone that I always snooped, but I don't remember ever snooping! That's not saying I didn't, my memory gets worse each year!

One year mom sent me upstairs for some towels in the bathroom. When I lifted up the towels I found a wrapped present. Thinking I wasn't supposed to know it was there, I covered it back up and took the towels down to mom. She was perplexed to say the least and said "didn't you see the present hidden for you?" Yes. But I didn't know I was supposed to find it! Oh what a goofy girl I was! LOL

I've never been a snooper but every year it seems like I find something accidentally. Truly. It makes me mad because I love surprises!

This year it was pistachios but that's an annual Christmas treat so that's okay.

No... I was only 4 or 5 years old and they were 10 and 11. That was so many years ago. I remember I got the Chatty Baby. My brother showed me and stuck it back in the closet. I was still excited to get it.
